JB Dewar Tractor Restoration Winners Awarded at CMSF

Templeton High School takes first and second place By CAMILLE DeVAUL camille@atascaderonews.com

PASO ROBLES — Shane Brennan and John Paul Schmidt took first and second place in the JB Dewar Tractor Restoration Program at the California Mid State Fair. Winners were announced during the Cattleman’s Day dinner on Friday, Jul. 22. This year marks 21 years of the program. Each year, JB Dewar and Chevron Delo reward young students who have restored an antique tractor by providing them with a platform to share their workmanship, along with the distribution of scholarships. JB Dewar mentors and advises students, teaching them business skills, teamwork, project management, budgeting, planning, and marketing lessons in their restoration process. This year there were eight

restored tractors entered. Students can work as a team or individually on a tractor. Since 2002, JB Dewar, Chevron Delo, the Alex Madonna family, and other local businesses have awarded over $100,000 in scholarships. Brennan is a Senior at Templeton High School (THS) and is the FFA Chapter President. He restored a 1952 Farmall Super AV, which took him two years to complete. This is Brennan’s second tractor he has restored for the program. This year’s tractor required a full rebuild, making it a more extensive project full of new lessons. Brennan said he learned more business skills, time management and honed in on his mechanical and rebuilding techniques. He got his tractor from Isaac Lindsey, a former THS student and Dewar tractor restoration program contestant. Brennan says, “I want to thank all my mentors. I appreciate all their help, and there’s so many I can’t name them all—I want to say thank you so much to all the people

who have guided me through the process and who have helped with donations.” Schmidt will be a Sophomore at THS later this year. He restored a 1940 Allis-Chalmers B that he has been working on since he was ten years old. The worn-out tractor was sitting under a neighbors tree when Schmidt decided to take on the project and rebuild the engine. Since then, Schmidt has been taking the tractor to various shows. As anyone who ever owned a tractor before knows, they can always use a little work, which is what Schmidt has been doing in preparation to enter the antique in the Dewar Restoration Program. Schmidt says his favorite part of the program was learning to machine his own parts, “I learned how to machine a lot of my own parts as a lot of them weren’t available.” Both boys are planning to enter their tractors in the Delo Tractor Restoration, a national-level competition.

COVID-19 UPDATE

How it’s affecting farmers, and how it will affect the nation By CAMILLE DeVAUL camille@atascaderonews.com

CALIFORNIA — If you have driven through the California Valley, you’ve likely seen a sign that read “No Water = No Food.” These signs are remnants from the State’s previous droughts and never taken down because of how likely another waterless year will be. And here we are. California is facing yet another drought. According to the California Farm Water Coalition (CFWC), 2021 is on track to being critically dry— the same as the State’s last drought, which lasted from about 2014-2016. What’s worse is, as of Jun. 2, over 2 million acres—more than one-quarter of Californian irrigated farmland—is receiving 5 percent or less of its water supply. More than half of that is getting no water allocation at all. In other areas of California, farms have reportedly had their water supplies cut by 25 percent or more, and 60,000 acres in Northern California will receive zero water this year. Founded in 1989, the CFWC is a non-profit, educational organization that provides fact-based information on farm water issues to the public.

“We’re all about helping people understand the connection between farm water and their food supply,” said Mike Wade, executive director at CFWC. Due to lack of water, farmers across the State have had to face the crucial decision to reduce their planted acres. And some farmers were given no choice but to plow under their crop—because the California Water Board (CWB) cut off their water supply by suspending the farmer’s water rights. Farmers on the Russian River and the Sacramento-San Juaquin watershed have already had their junior water rights suspended by the CWB. “We’ve seen dozens of crops that are having reduced plantings this year. Farmers are fallowing fields of annual crops,” said Wade. He continued, “What that does is it doesn’t just affect the farmer, as important as that is. It affects communities. It affects people who depend on those farms for jobs. It

affects related businesses, particularly transportation and processing all the way down the food chain to the grocery store where we see reduced supply and higher prices for consumers.” The last driest year California saw was in 2015. According to drought. gov, “drought impacts to California’s agricultural sector resulted in $1.84 billion in direct costs, a loss of 10,100 seasonal jobs, and surface water shortages of 8.7 million acrefeet.” California Governor Gavin Newsom was on the Central Coast Jul. 8, where he signed an executive order for Californians, including agriculture, commercial and residential, to decrease water use by 15 percent. As of Jul. 13, 50 California counties have declared a drought emergency, including San Luis Obispo County, affecting 42 percent of California’s population. CONTINUED ON PAGE A15

FARMING

Pet Adoption: North County Paws Cause After a COVID kitten explosion, cats need forever homes By PATRICK PATTON

Locals and visitors attended the first Open Farm day hosted by FARMsted Ed. Photos by Brittany App

1st Open Farm Day in SLO County Raises Moo-la for Local Community and Ag Education STAFF REPORT

SAN LUIS OBISPO — On Saturday, Jul. 17, San Luis Obispo County came out in droves to attend the first Open Farm Day, a county-wide selfguided tour along with farms and ranches in the county. Hosted by FARMstead ED, founded in 2014, whose mission is to educate the importance of sustainable practices, local land, and everything from meat to mixology via educational workshops and gatherings. The committee shared, “No one knew what to expect from this first Open Farm Day—especially given the past year and a half. Fingers were crossed that community members would gather and travel the Trail to tour, taste, and learn. What we gathered was so much more; they came out in droves, excited, engaged, and interested to truly connect to our local agriCULTURAL experiences. The energy was amazing, the smiles were infectious, and as promised, the animals were adorable.” The Open Farm Day raised over $6,000 that will go directly back into the community via Glean SLO, The Great AGventure, and FARMstead ED. “ALL the thanks go to our farmers and purveyors, who tried something they’ve never done before, jumped through hoops with planning and promotion, helped spread the word, and received the community with open arms (and gates) by hosting farm tours, workshops, demo’s, tastings and unique agricultural experiences. Guests blazed their own trail learning about luffa’s, how to milk a goat, observed busy bees in their hives, strolled through fresh flower fields, sipped hard ciders and local wines, grazed on locally grown groceries, tasted exquisite olive oils, hand-crafted aromatic and creative take-a-ways to remember the day by, toured the very fields their lunches

were harvested from, cuddled with newborn lambs, became educated gardeners, and so much more.” FarmSted Ed shared in a statement. Open Farm Day participants included City Farm, Clearwater Color Nursery, Couleur de la vie, The Educated Gardener, Giving Tree Family Farm, The Groves on 41, Hambly Farms, Hartley Farms, Kelpful, Kiler Ridge, Kindred Oak Farms, Life Elements, the Luffa Farm, Reves de Moutons, Sierra honey Farm, SLO Creek Farms, Talley Farms Fresh Harvest, Templeton Hills Beef, Vicarious Ranch, Windrose Farm, Yes Cocktail Co, Yvette Roman Photography and Casa Festiva. Sponsors included SLO Co Farm Bureau/Nationwide Insurance, Life Elements, Talley Farms, Windrose Farm/Finca Los Agaves, Reves de Moutons, Brittany App, Vicarious Ranch, James Healey, Tar Creek Ranch, General Store Paso Robles, Enjoy SLO, Jory Brigham Design, Hambly Farms, and the City of Atascadero.

NORTH COUNTY — North County Paws Cause is a volunteer-run non-profit organization with no paid staff. The volunteers pride themselves on the fact that one hundred percent of donations go to the care of their cats and kittens, but after a COVID kitten explosion, they are in need of more help. The basis of the organization is the spaying and neutering of community cats. The most significant intake of cats and kittens at the County of Animal Services comes from North San Luis Obispo (SLO) County. Spaying and neutering help to stabilize a cat colony for health and prevents unwanted litters of kittens. The Paws Cause volunteers work hard at trapping and taking cats in for surgery. Paws Cause also has a very successful foster program for cats and kittens. Their foster cats and kittens are placed into foster family homes and are socialized, but most of all, they are loved and cared for until they are old enough to move on to their forever homes. Paws Cause does not have a brick-and-mortar shelter. Most of their volunteers are in North County; however, they do have some individuals in SLO and Los Osos.

How the Pandemic Transformed the Wedding Industry By PATRICK PATTON

CENTRAL COAST — To say our lives have changed over the past year and a half would be an understatement. Not only has the reaction to the COVID-19 coronavirus changed our lives, it has caused significant shifts in the way business is done. Our beautiful Central Coast is home to a bustling wedding industry, as couples travel from all over the globe to say “I do” right here in our special corner of the world. However, the wedding industry took a major hit when health officials placed heavy restrictions on travel, social gatherings, and events. Dawn White of Pacific Harvest Catering & ToGo said, “Our business pivoted and created a to-go dinner program for locals that we still do in addition to weddings— which are still half of our business.

28th Annual Hot El Camino Cruise Nite Kicks Off Cruisin’ Weekend

STAFF REPORT

ATASCADERO — The City of Atascadero announced the 28th Annual Hot El Camino Cruise Nite is scheduled for Friday, Aug. 20, from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. as part of its Cruisin’ Weekend. The Cruise will take place up and down El Camino Real in Atascadero. From classic favorites to new and flashy hot rods, this event brings out the best cars from all over the county and surrounding areas. Do you want to “Cruise the Nite Away?” Then pre-registration is located at the Colony Park

Amazon then donates a percentage of your purchase at no cost to the shopper. Gillingham says they could really use more volunteers in a number of areas. “Last year, we were not able to do trapping and releasing,” said Gillingham. “There are more unaltered cats in the community now, and they’re all having babies! One of the best things people in the community can do is get their cats fixed. Even if you’re simply putting food out for a random cat, or you see there are random cats, trapping and fixing them, then returning them, is a huge service both to the cat and your community.” Paws Cause has 107 cats and kittens in foster homes right now, most of which are ready to be adopted into forever homes. Visit northcounty-pawscause.org to see photos and descriptions of adoptable cats and kittens.

pet’ relinquish those animals, as people go back to work in the office—which is really disheartening,” said Gillingham. “There are great options available for people going back to work! Pet daycare, pet sitters, training—these are all better than relinquishing a pet.” One of the Paws Cause volunteers has been trying to get the SNIP Bus—a mobile spay and neuter clinic headquartered in Contra Costa County—scheduled to come to SLO County as an additional resource. Gillingham explained that donations to rescues have been lighter than they had been in past years since so many found themselves with less disposable income during the COVID-19 lockdowns. “Donations are the easiest thing that community members can do to help,” said Gillingham. “We accept cash donations via Paypal [northcountypawscause@gmail.com]. Donations are tax-deductible.” Those wanting to donate can also go to northcounty-pawscause.org/ donate-here or drop off donations of food, litter, toys, beds, etc. at these locations: • Foss Farm’s Farmstand - 3300 Traffic Way in Atascadero • Petco - 2155 Theatre Dr. in Paso Robles • Grocery Outlet - 2800 Riverside Ave. #102 next to Tractor supply in Paso Robles Another option is to shop using smile.amazon.com when on Amazon and set North County Paws Cause as their non-profit of choice.

About

FARMstead ED: Bringing folks together with our locally grown via agricultural experiences and gatherings. San Luis Obispo County local, Lynette Sonne, founded FARMstead ED nearly eight years ago to serve as a conduit between visitors and farmers, educating folks on the importance of sustainable practices, local land, and craft. Sonne organizes opportunities for both tourists and townies to learn about everything from meat to mixology via educational workshops & gatherings at held at local farms, ranches, and other production-related venues. TOUR – TASTE – LEARN on the SLO Co Farm Trail: Sonne’s agri-cultural roots started growing again with the SLO County Farm Trail two years ago, connecting agri-enthusiasts with ranches, farms, and purveyors of San Luis Obispo County with a printed and online trail map and the county’s first-ever Open Farm Day in 2021. Visit farmsteaded.com for a copy of the SLO Co Farm Trail map and to learn more about the workshops and tours being offered.

“I’m regularly amazed at what this group of volunteers accomplishes on such a tight budget and with only volunteers,” said Elizabeth Gillingham, a Paws Cause Foster. “Spaying and neutering community cats so they don’t contribute to the overpopulation of feral cats, trapping and socializing feral kittens and then adopting them out, rescuing cats and kittens from our local animal services, helping special needs cats that come into our foster care, and helping with cat hoarding situations.” Gillingham said they currently have “too many kittens, not enough foster homes! I think I can safely say that almost all animal rescue groups had a very tough year. Since shelters were essentially closed last year, many SNR [Spay Neuter Return] programs were shut down as well. We weren’t able to get cats in to get fixed, so this kitten season has been like no other. We’re getting caught back up on SNR, but the spay programs are now inundated with everyone trying to get animals fixed.” Even for rescues with a brickand-mortar shelter, trying to schedule adopters to visit so that everyone can remain as safe as possible during COVID has been a challenge. It’s been challenging for Paws Cause as well, with volunteers inviting people into their homes to meet their potential new kitten or taking kittens to visit their potential new homes. “Now we are starting to see people who adopted a ‘COVID

Cash and checks only for on-site registration (no credit cards accepted). Hot El Camino Cruise Nite kicks off Cruisin’ Weekend on Friday night, which will continue into Saturday, Aug. 21, with the City’s 5th Annual Dancing in the Streets in the Downtown from 5 to 9 p.m.

However, weddings used to be ninety percent of our business.” “At the beginning of 2020, I had 120 events on the books, and I did 35,” said Bottles & Ice owner Anissa Hedges. “Of course, at that point, they were all micro-events, like eighteen-person weddings...We were masking up; we were wearing gloves; we had seven bottles of hand sanitizer on the bar. A lot of venues built plexiglass barriers for the bar.” The pandemic not only changed how weddings are done, but in a lot of ways, it made couples and vendors rethink what weddings are. “As a result of the pandemic, we have recognized many changes in the industry,” said Kristen Pinter, Managing Partner of Higuera Ranch. “Elopements were not as common before the pandemic, but there seems to be a new surge! Couples are focusing more on their weekend experience surrounded by their closest family and friends. The vows have become very intimate, and the celebrations have a fresh energy!” “I think it also changed my

perspective of weddings,” said Hedges. “Everybody was just so grateful to be out doing something or to have a sense of normalcy, but... those eighteen to thirty person weddings were so fun, and everyone was so nice and so happy to be there.” Wedding videographer Chelsea Schmitz of Stories Told by Film explained that with couples unable to invite as many family members as before, an increased priority has been placed on securing a professional videographer. “I used to be one of the last vendors booked,” said Schmitz, “but in a lot of cases, I’ve suddenly become the first vendor couples book for their wedding. Video has become more important than ever now that weddings have become smaller.” Schmitz described an elopement to which herself, the photographer, and their two assistants were the only guests in attendance. In fact, the photographer’s assistant also officiated the elopement. This is one example of the larger trend toward

smaller, more intimate ceremonies. “Some of the smallest weddings I’ve filmed have been my favorite,” said Schmitz. “Another positive impact of the pandemic has been family created through vendor relationships!” said Pinter. “We weathered the storm together, and now we embrace the opportunity to bring dreams to life. I love seeing the smiling faces of vendor friends at the ranch!” While we have no way of knowing what the future will bring, restrictions have begun to lift for now, and things are beginning to resemble something like normalcy. As the clouds begin to part, perhaps some of our silver linings will remain with us to remind us that there is always a way through the storm.

LOCAL NEWS TEMPLETON

TCSD Discusses Fire Master Plan, Defers for Later Date

SLO County Sheriff and California Highway Patrol discussed disturbances and car accidents By MELISSA GUERRA

TEMPLETON — Templeton Community Services District held a regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 3 at 6:15 p.m. for closed session and 7 p.m. for open session The meeting began with President Debra Logan making a change to the order of the items, moving the Fire and Emergency master plan to the last item on the agenda. Next, the board heard the San Luis County Sheriff Commander Michael Manuele’s presentation regarding disturbances in the Templeton area. There were 469 calls for the Templeton area, with 238 reports. Two calls for service regarding assault and battery, two disturbances, and three burglar-

ies, and ten theft calls. There were a total of 236 calls regarding fireworks in the County, 38 in Templeton in July. Director Pamela Jardini inquired with the Commander regarding flying flags off the overpass which is allowed in cities but prohibited in unincorporated areas. The Commander was not familiar with the particular code but would look into it. Director Debra Logan added that the concern from constituents is largely for the safety, as those standing with the flags are not on a curb but standing in a bike lane. The next presentation was the California Highway Patrol (CHP) Officer Stewart. There were 62 crashes area-wide, with 9 of those occurring in Templeton on the freeway and 15 on the surface streets in Templeton. There have been 1,060 enforcement contacts, with 68 occurring near Templeton on the freeway and 20 occurring on Templeton surface streets. The enforcement count has almost doubled since 2019, while 100+ violations have been decreasing.

The consent agenda was approved without discussion with a 4-1 vote with Director Geoff English, not present. The next item was divesting Cemetery powers to the Local Agency Formation Committee (LAFCO). In 2006, the District applied to activate its Cemetery Power to assist the Templeton Cemetery District in managing the Cemetery. LAFCO approved the activation of the power, and the District, through an agreement with the Templeton Cemetery District, provided accounting and bookkeeping services as well as assisted customers of the Cemetery. In 2012, the Cemetery no longer needed assistance from TCSD, and since that time, TCSD has not been involved in any way with the affairs of the Cemetery. General Manager Jeff Briltz said he views this more as a house cleaning item, but there was still discussion regarding the fee associated with processing the application to make the motion final. The motion had support, but the District was not interested in

incurring the expense, so it was deemed that Briltz would return to LAFCO to express the interest in LAFCO absorbing the cost. Next, Fire Chief Peterson began the Fire Department Master Plan. As Templeton Fire & Emergency Services is near its first year of 24/7 staffing, they realize that the current Fire Station and Apparatus deficiencies need to be addressed. AP Triton has conducted a study of the current and future apparatus needs and provided recommendations on how best to proceed. Some items require board action, while others do not. One suggested item is an expansion of the Fire Station. Staff recommendations were to accept the report and go out for a bid for a space planner/Architect for the preliminary design and determine costs of the Fire Station expansion. The items in the plan were all deemed necessary, but due to financial concerns, the plan was set forth to use the assessment plan and direct staff and fire committee to respond to the constraints and recommendations for funding

sources, and prioritize the recommendations, with the final master plan still pending. A motion was made to accept the findings of the Templeton Fire and Emergency Services assessment plan prepared by AP Triton and direct staff to issue a request for qualifications for a preliminary design for fire station expansion. The goal to move towards a master plan is still in the future. The motion passed 5-0. Next, the General Manager’s report commented on the water units that had been accepted, with the remaining five units pending formal agreement for acceptance. The remaining five units have until Aug. 12 to secure the agreement. The next meeting is set for Tuesday, Aug. 17 at 7 p.m., and the agenda will be available on the district’s website: templetoncsd. org/AgendaCenter The tentative items are: • Riparian Agency Agreement • Evers Sports Park Design/ Engineering Award • Source Control Regulatory Update

COMMUNITY

Paso Robles Salinas River Project, Fires and Homeless 19,000 pounds of trash and materials have been removed in July STAFF REPORT

PASO ROBLES — On May 24, notice was provided in the Salinas Riverbed, from Niblick Bridge to the city limits north of the Wastewater Treatment Plant, that the Fire Chief had designated the area as high fire risk. This included instructions that all persons must vacate, and all property had to be removed by May 25. Additional notifications have been provided on a continuous basis, and cleanup has been conducted. The Community Action Team (CAT), in conjunction with the Paso Robles Fire Department and the Community Services Department, have all worked towards obtaining compliance by identifying and monitoring fire sources, removing trash and discarded materials, and cleaning up unsanitary sites. Once cleaned, the sites were found reestablished, including having open fire pits, propane tanks, gas-powered generators, large car/RV batteries, discarded drug paraphernalia, trash, and unsanitary conditions. From Jul. 13 through Jul. 22, approximately 19,000 pounds of trash and discarded materials were removed at the cost of $9,130.00. Six arrests were made for charges including having an illegal fire, drug/paraphernalia possession and refusing to vacate and remove property within the designated high fire risk area. On Jul. 16, the Paso Robles Fire and Emergency Services were dispatched to a vegetation fire south of the Niblick Bridge within the Salinas River. Fire engines arrived at the scene within approximately five minutes and discovered a 50 by 50 fire burning near Kohls in

the riverbed. The fire was burning in heavy vegetation between the main river channel and a recently grazed firebreak. Firefighters accessed the fire through the managed firebreak and quickly stopped the fire’s forward spread at one-fourth acre. Investigators determined the fire to be human-caused. On Jul. 20, the Paso Robles Police Department released a statement saying, “We understand the community’s concern for a clean downtown. The Community Action Team, in conjunction with the Community Services Department, has made a concerted effort to patrol the downtown and remove shopping carts, trash, and discarded items. Several trailer loads and truckloads and approximately 15 carts have been removed over the last three weeks.” Then on Wednesday, Jul. 28, at approximately 11:27 a.m. Paso Robles Fire and Emergency Services responded to a report of a vegetation fire in the riverbed, south of the Niblick Bridge. First arriving, firefighters found a quarter acre of grass and brush actively burning in the riverbed. Firefighters were able to contain the fire within 30 minutes to one acre and worked to fully extinguish the fire over the next five hours. The cause of these fires were also found to be human in nature, at the site of a homeless encampment. The fire was contained on two sides by previously grazed areas and man-made fire breaks. Then on Wednesday, Aug. 4, at approximately 4:47 a.m. Paso Robles Fire and Emergency Services reported a fire in the Salinas riverbed south of Niblick Road. There is no further information available at this time. Prior to starting the Salinas Riverbed Project, Interim City Manager Greg Carpenter addressed the residents’ concern for the homeless population and the safety

of the community during the dry fire season. “Like many cities in California, and around the country and world for that matter, Paso Robles has seen an increase in the number of un-housed local residents, which increased during the Great Recession and again during the pandemic,” Greg Carpenter said. “The issue is a complex one and one that is being wrestled with at the highest levels of government and in courts across the US. What is unique about Paso Robles is that a river runs through the middle of our City, providing relative shelter for un-housed individuals and an increased risk of fires. We have created a FAQ document to help provide context, explain the City’s legal considerations surrounding homelessness and hazardous fuel mitigation in the riverbed, and to provide information on what the City is doing to help address some of the local challenges that have increased homelessness in the area and how interested residents can help.” The City has addressed a wide-range

list of considerations surrounding the issue and impacts of homelessness and how the City needs to clear the Salinas Riverbed of hazardous fuels. The impact to the community is currently being discussed at the Paso Robles City Council meetings and at the City level. During the Aug. 3 City Council meeting, Mayor Martin said the Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce requested to discuss homelessness, its impact on the community, and its frustration with the problem. As a result, the Chamber is putting together a plan to issue a solution to homelessness in the area. According to the Mayor, more information on this plan will come, but he did not say when. The Paso Robles Press has reached out to both the Paso Robles Police Department and the City to follow up on inquires made by local residents about the fire concerns, the growing homeless population, and the safety of the downtown visitors and businesses. We will update this story as soon as we have more information.

COVID-19 UPDATE

Following Governor Newsom’s Recent Vaccination Measures, Others Follow Suit CDC withdraws request from FDA for Emergency Use for the RT-PCR Diagnostic Test STAFF REPORT

S AC R A M E N T O – Throughout the past week, some of California’s largest employers – both private businesses and local governments— have announced that they will be following Governor Gavin Newsom’s lead in implementing employee vaccine and testing measures. After California implemented new vaccine verification and testing requirements for state and health care workers last Monday and then President Joseph Biden followed suit this past Thursday, employers have implemented similar measures for thousands of employees throughout the state and nationally.

Counties Include

City of Los Angeles City of San Francisco San Diego County City of Long Beach

• • • •

Companies Include

• Uber • California Business Roundtable • The coalition includes: • California Business Properties Association • California Hotel and Lodging Association • California Manufacturers and Technology Association • California Retailers Association • California Restaurant Association • Orange County Business Council • Los Angeles County BizFed • Central Valley BizFed • Inland Empire Economic Partnership In the rollout last week, Newsom stated that unvaccinated workers will be subject to at least one to two weekly COVID-19 tests and will be required to wear appropriate PPE. This requirement applies to high-risk congregate settings like an adult and senior residential facilities, homeless shelters, and jails. The new policy for state workers took effect on Aug. 2, and testing will be phased in over the next few weeks. The new policy for health care workers and congregate facili-

ties will take effect on Aug. 9, and health care facilities will have until Aug. 23 to come into full compliance. This push for vaccinations and testing is still in the wake of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) announcement on Jul. 21 that after Dec. 31 of this year, the CDC will withdraw the request to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of the CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel. The assay was first introduced in February 2020 for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 only. According to the CDC, the PCR test that has been used solely in San Luis Obispo County and nationally is inaccurate and could potentially risk false results. Therefore, they encourage laboratories to consider adopting a multiplexed method to facilitate the detection and differentiation of SARS-CoV-2 and influenza viruses. Along with the CDC’s information, it was also confirmed that the current testing for COVID-19 can not detect different strains such as the Delta variant. The COVID Delta Variant

causing the new outbreaks and hospitalizations to spike even show that it is more transmissible but not deadly. Throughout the nation, there has been a decline in the number of individuals getting vaccinated. This has led local government officials to create awareness campaigns to urge the public to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. To incentivize the residents of San Luis Obispo County to get vaccinated, the SLO County Public Health announced that starting on Aug. 2, anyone who gets their COVID-19 vaccine from a County of San Luis Obispo Public Health Clinic or mobile vaccination clinic will be eligible to receive a $25 gift card for each dose. Gift cards available will vary by clinic and will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. “Increasing vaccination throughout SLO County is key to ending the pandemic, especially with the spread of the Delta variant,” said Dr. Penny Borenstein, County Health Officer. “These incentives are a prompt to act now to protect yourself and your family with the vaccine. While I hope the gift cards are a helpful motivator, the true value is being protected from the cost and

suffering of COVID-19.” In addition, Public Health is launching a referral raffle to encourage residents to help their friends and family get the vaccine. This could mean helping make an appointment, offering a ride to the clinic, going along to offer support, or sharing information. Those who get vaccinated can enter the person who helped or referred them into a weekly drawing for a gift basket (a $100 value). “Every vaccine brings us a step closer to ending the pandemic and sparing our loved ones and neighbors from this terrible disease as the Delta variant sweeps through SLO County,” said Dr. Borenstein. “For those who have been waiting, I urge you to make an appointment or walk-in and get your vaccine.” On Tuesday, Aug. 3, the County announced that two residents, one in their sixties and one in their eighties, passed away due to COVID-19. Information regarding vaccination status or underline health conditions was not mentioned.

HEALTH

CDC Issues Eviction Order Extension In areas of substantial and high transmission of SARS-CoV-2 STAFF REPORT

NATIONAL — The Center for Disease Control (CDC) Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky signed an order to extend the evictions of tenants for failure to make rent or housing payments after the original order expired on Jul. 31. The new order will expire on Oct. 3 and applies in United States counties experiencing substantial and high levels of community transmission levels of SARS-CoV-2. The eviction moratorium allows additional time for rent relief to reach renters and to further increase vaccination rates. In the context of a pandemic, eviction moratoria—like quarantine, isolation, and social distancing—can be an effective public health measure utilized to prevent the spread of communicable diseases. Eviction moratoria facilitate self-isolation and self-quarantine by people who become ill or who are at risk of transmitting COVID-19 by keeping people out of congregate settings and in their own homes. The eviction moratorium does not forgive any past due rent owed; it only prolongs the timeline to pay the bulk amount back to the landlords, which was the purpose of the additional funds given through unemployment over the last year and a half. CDC remains committed and will continue to explore and use all of the tools at our disposal to protect the health and well-being of Americans affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The order can be found at: www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/covideviction-declaration.html.

BRIBERY

Natural Healing Center Founder Pleads Guilty to Federal Charges Helios Raphael Dayspring charged with bribing a SLO County Supervisor and IRS Fraud STAFF REPORT

SAN LUIS OBISPO - Helios Raphael Dayspring (35), the founder of the Natural Healing Center, a cannabis retailer, has pleaded guilty to bribery and failing to report millions of dollars in income to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). According to the Department of Justice,

Dayspring, who has shops in Grover Beach and Morro Bay, has been charged in Federal Court and agreed to pay $3.4 million in restitution to the IRS and cooperate in an ongoing government investigation. Referring to his plea agreement, Dayspring admitted to bribing former San Luis Obispo County District 3 Supervisor Adam Hill to further his cannabis businesses. Hill was found dead at his home in Pismo Beach on Aug. 6, 2020. The San Luis Obispo County Coroner’s Office ruled his death a suicide. In March 2020, Hill was hospitalized for what he said was an attempted suicide. That same day the FBI carried out a search warrant at the San Luis Obispo County Government Center. Neither Hill nor the

FBI would comment on the investigation at the time. The current charges against Dayspring are reportedly part of an ongoing public corruption investigation in SLO County. Later in August 2020, Natural Healing Center announced Dayspring was stepping down as CEO “to devote his energy and attention to other personal avenues of opportunity.” Natural Healing Center also has a location in Lemoore and plans to add shops in San Luis Obispo and Turlock. In April 2020, Hill resigned his position as Chair of the Board of Supervisors but resumed his duties as District 3 Supervisor. Dayspring reportedly started bribing Hill in the fall of 2016, paying him a total of $32,000 in cash and money orders. In exchange, federal prosecutors say Hill

ACADEMIA

People’s Self-Help Housing’s Education Program Reports Improvement The 2020-21 school years shows a 74 percent increase in student scores STAFF REPORT

CENTRAL COAST — People’s Self-Help Housing (PSHH) Camino Scholars program has published its end-of-year data showing students’ grades and skill-based improvements during the past school year. The report reflects a significant increase in final scores across all subjects. At the start of the school year, only 35 percent of students enrolled in the program were reading at grade level, and 32 percent were two or more grade levels behind in reading. By the end of the school year, 61 percent of students are now reading at their grade level or higher, and only 13 percent need greater assistance. Overall, the program has seen a 74 percent increase in student scores compared to the start of the academic year. “Upon school closures due to the pandemic, we kept working with students and took what would have been a bad situation and turned it into something positive resulting in growth for the program and our students despite COVID,” said PSHH Director of Education Joanna Dominguez. “For nearly two

decades, we have provided a wide range of site-based services, addressing the opportunity gap and supporting educational dreams. COVID resulted in us continuing to provide just that in more creative ways.” Camino Scholars, PSHH nationally recognized education program, has been serving hundreds of students this past year using a hybrid learning curriculum. Students have benefitted from small learning cohorts, supported by in-person instruction personalized to their individual needs, offered at specially developed Academic Support Centers. PSHH educators provide free programming and services for students yearround, including all school breaks. Developing numerous partnerships with local school districts, access has been broadened to include students not living at PSHH properties. Under ordinary circumstances, Camino Scholars serves over 600 students per year at its 11 onsite learning centers, which are located throughout San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties. The program also helps prepare college-bound students with application assistance, financial aid navigation, career exploration workshops, campus visits, and mentorship. This relationship continues through graduation of the terminal degree; the

program just saw its first student enrolled in Ph D. studies. To learn more about Camino Scholars, visit pshhc.org/education.

voted multiple times in favor of legislation that permitted Dayspring’s cannabis farms to operate before he had obtained final permitting approvals. Dayspring also admitted to trying to bribe the mayor of Grover Beach in 2017 in exchange for two dispensary licenses. John Shoals was the mayor at that time and reportedly did not respond to the $100,000 offer, and Dayspring did not pay the bribe. Federal officials say Dayspring also admitted to underreporting his personal income on his federal tax returns for four years, resulting in the IRS losing more than $3.4 million in tax revenue. Dayspring is scheduled to make his first court appearance in this case in Los Angeles in August. Once he officially pleads guilty to the charges, officials say Dayspring will face a

RECALL ELECTION

Larry Elder Begins Campaigning for Governor of California Seat Elder showing a lead of 74.8 percent among the recall candidates STAFF REPORT

CALIFORNIA — Larry Elder, nationally syndicated radio host and newspaper columnist, bestselling author, award-winning documentary filmmaker, and one of the best-known media figures in America, formally launched his campaign for governor of California in mid-July. Widely known as the Sage from South Central, Elder announced on his daily radio program, “The Larry Elder Show,” that he will fight to end Governor Gavin Newsom’s disastrous policies in the special recall election scheduled for Sept. 14. In his campaign launch video, Elder said, “I love this state. You do, too. That is why we are still here. That is why I want you to stay here and to build your family. To do so, we need to take this state back.” Elder added, “Californians can connect the dots between [Newsom’s] extremist policies and failing schools, brownouts, violent crime, deadlier ‘fire seasons,’ homelessness, businesses leaving the state and taking jobs with them, and the rising cost of living.” Elder filed papers at the Los Angeles County Registrar’s office and became a formal candidate. Before a raucous crowd of supporters, Elder pledged to recall Governor Newsom and restore a brighter future to Cali-

fornia. “We’ve got a state to save,” he said. On Jul. 21, Elder announced that he had won his lawsuit against California Secretary of State Shirley N. Weber. The Superior Court of California ruled that Secretary Weber will list Elder as a candidate for governor in the special California recall election scheduled for Sept. 14. The court’s ruling reverses the secretary’s decision to disqualify Elder as a candidate for alleged redaction issues with the income tax returns filed with his candidacy application. According to the court, the law by which the Secretary of State required candidates to submit tax returns for the upcoming election applies to direct primary elections, not recall elections. Hence, Elder did not have to file tax returns at all to qualify as a candidate. “I want to express my deepest gratitude to the Superior Court of California, our friends, volunteers, supporters, and the people of California,” Elder said in a statement. “We fought the shenanigans of Sacramento’s politicians, and we won. If elected governor, I will fight every single day for this state. This is just the beginning.” Then on Aug. 3, Emerson College released a poll showing Elder in the lead among recall candidates at 23 percent, seven points higher than in the last Emerson poll conducted two weeks ago. Voters remain nearly split on recalling Governor Gavin Newsom, with 46 percent in favor and 48 percent opposed. Homelessness and crime

listed as top concerns. Political Action Committee Reform California, a grassroots organization supporting the recall, also released their polling of activists statewide. Elder is shown with a lead at 74.8 percent, making him the clear favorite among the recall candidates. “I am fired up and ready to bring my message to even more Californians. The polls are in our favor. Let’s make this a reality and recall Gavin Newsom because we’ve got a state to save,” said Elder. This statement came just before Aug. 4 when the Orange County Board of Education announced that it plans to sue Governor Newsom over the state’s mandate that K-12 students must wear masks indoors for the upcoming school year. Elder replied to the announcement by stating, “Newsom’s mask mandates and authoritarian “emergency powers” will go away—whether by court or by soon-to-be Governor Elder.” For more information about the Elder for Governor 2021 campaign, please visit ElectElder.com.

Redwings Horse Sanctuary Hosts Grand Opening and 30th Anniversary Celebration Tickets on sale now for Block Party on Sunday, Sept. 19 STAFF REPORT

PASO ROBLES — Redwings Horse Sanctuary recently moved to their new permanent home at 6875 Union Road in Paso Robles. In honor of the move and their 30th Anniversary, they are hosting a grand opening block party and Celebration on Sunday, Sept. 19, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event will have a barbeque catered by Co-Host Cass Winery, music by Monte Mills and The Lucky Horseshoe Band, farrier and riding demonstrations, tours, outdoor games, and a live auction! Everyone is welcome! Come and enjoy the festivities, meet the horses and see the new facility! General admission tickets are on sale now for $25.00, which includes barbeque by Cass Winery. VIP Tickets are also available and include an open bar for $125.00. Purchase tickets by visiting redwingshorsesanctuary.org. All proceeds go to help Redwings Horse Sanctuary eliminate the causes of equine suffering through education and community outreach programs, rescue abused, abandoned, and neglected equines, and provide permanent sanctuary or selected foster/adoptive homes for those equines.

Redwings Horse Sanctuary began in May 1991 as a non-profit, 501(c) (3) organization in Carmel, with a mission to end the abuse, neglect, and slaughter of horses, ponies, donkeys, mules, and burros through rescue and foster care. In its first year, Redwings rescued 15 equines from abusive or life-threatening situations. Redwings staff then rehabilitated the equines and matched them with carefully screened adoptive homes. Redwings’ first rescue was a beautiful Thoroughbred gelding named Island Fighter. Redwings received a call from Fresno County to alert them about a horse in an auction pen with a fractured shoulder. Redwings originally planned to purchase the horse to end his suffering humanely, but the horse had spirit, and a veterinarian was called in to assess the severity of the horse’s injury. Island Fighter was in luck; the vet determined that the young horse could make a full recovery with a long rest and rehabilitation period. The staff at Redwings renamed the horse

“Sam” after Congressman Sam Farr, who is a huge supporter of the organization. Redwings also addressed educational, financial, and other factors behind equine neglect. The organization initiated several programs, including an equine education program for new owners and an equine medical assistance program for owners with low incomes. In the fall of 1992, Redwings broadened its scope to include permanent sanctuary for those equines who were unable to be adopted, ensuring them a secure and life-long home at the sanctuary. From 1992 to 2000, Redwings leased a beautiful ranch overlooking the ocean off Highway 1 in Carmel. In 2000 Redwings moved to a 167-acre ranch in southern Monterey County, California. The entire Redwings family of 90 equines, staff members, and some volunteers completed the transition to the new sanctuary in March 2002. Today 86 horses call Redwings home. They have everything from the smallest miniature horse to the largest draft horse. The herd of 9 burros from Death Valley are at the entrance of the sanctuary to greet all the staff, visitors, and volunteers each day. Our herd of Mustangs from the Pryor Mountains of Montana are very popular with guests, and our draft herd, rescued from the Premarin auctions in Canada, stand regally at the top of their hill and keep a watchful eye over the ranch. Redwings has a foster to adopt program to ensure that all our horses go to approved and loving homes. Potential homes must fill out a foster application and have a home inspection before being approved to foster a Redwings horse. The mandatory one-year foster period enables Redwings staff to keep a close eye on the foster horse and make sure they are happy, healthy, and a good fit for the foster family. After a year of successful fostering, the horse is then available for adoption by the foster family. Those not adoptable horses due to age, illness, or injury have a permanent home at the sanctuary. In 2014 Redwings was accredited by CARMA (California Race Management Account) and is an approved after-care partner for Thoroughbreds that raced in California. In 2015 Redwings was accredited by TAA (Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance), a national organization, as an approved aftercare facility for retired racehorses. Then on Sept. 30, 2016, Redwings was received full accreditation from GFAS (Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries), an international organization that provides certification for animal sanctuaries through verification and accreditation.

Event Celebrating his Life Planned STAFF REPORT

MORRO BAY — Councilmember Robert “Red” Davis passed away peacefully on Saturday, Jul. 24, at his home in Morro Bay. Red is survived by his loving wife Gail Davis and their daughter Catherine Sullivan, son-in-law Pat, and granddaughters Caitlyn and Sara. He was 76 years old. Red Davis began his service as Councilmember in 2017 and won a second four-year term in November 2020. Councilmember Davis was instrumental, along with his Council colleagues, in moving forward the Water Reclamation Facility, improving the City’s financial condition, and enhancing communication with the community. Prior to being elected to Council, Red Davis served on various City ad hoc committees, including the General Plan Advisory Committee. He volunteered for numerous community organizations, including the Morro Bay Chamber of Commerce, Friends of the Morro Bay Library, and Bike SLO County. Red retired from CalTrans in 1996 as a project manager after 33 years of service and proudly served his country in the U.S. Air Force from 1965 to 1998, retiring as Senior Master Sergeant. “On behalf of the City Council, I want

to offer my heartfelt condolences to Gail, Catherine, and her husband and their children, and to Red’s many friends in Morro Bay and beyond,” offered Mayor John Headding. “Red Davis was a wonderful leader and friend to so many. He was a servant leader who worked tirelessly to advance and improve the quality of life of our community as a whole. Red’s strong work ethic, clear and concise communication style and genuine care for our community members enabled him to make a huge impact on important City initiatives. Those included the WRF project, Embarcadero improvements, advancement of offshore wind energy, stabilization of City finances, and the realization of several economic development projects. Red was truly one of a kind, and we are going to miss him greatly.” “We are grateful to have known and worked for Councilmember Davis as City staff,” said City Manager Scott Collins. “I greatly appreciated his curiosity about how things worked and his kindness. He loved his job and connected so well with the community and City employees. We wish love to his family and friends during this tough time. We hope members of the community will join us in honoring Red’s life and service.” The celebration of life is planned for Monday, Aug. 9, at 10 a.m. in Morro Bay’s Cloisters Park. Friends, neighbors, partnering agencies’ representatives, community members, City Councilmembers, employees, and volunteers are encouraged to attend this public event, hosted by Red’s family and the City of Morro Bay. Attendees should plan to arrive early. As Red was an avid biking enthusiast, those who are able are encouraged to ride their bikes to the event. A bike valet will be available to safely and securely park bikes at the park. The main parking lot at Cloisters Park will be reserved for Red’s family members,

for those who need ADA assistance, and for event set-up purposes only. General parking will be available at Cloisters Park in the adjacent dirt field. In addition, event overflow parking will be set up at Spencer’s Fresh Market parking lot (2650 Main Street) to be serviced by a trolley to and from the event. Special thanks to Bike SLO County for donating the bike valet to Spencer’s Fresh Market for offering use of their parking lot to help with event overflow. Red’s family has asked that in lieu of providing flowers, folks consider donating to Bike SLO County in Red’s name. “The outpouring of support and love to Red’s family and to the City team since his passing has been absolutely incredible and heartwarming,” said City Manager Scott Collins. “We encourage all of those who were touched by Red in some way to attend this event to honor his life.” As this event is being held during a time of rising COVID-19 cases locally, unvaccinated attendees should wear a mask, and others may also consider wearing a mask. For more guidance, please review the State of California’s latest recommendations related to COVID-19 and masks.

enthusiasm displayed by recall backers, who salivate at the prospect of throwing out Newsom (known to many of them as “Gov. Nuisance”). Can Newsom make the recall synonymous with Trump? He shouldn’t have too hard a time, as the most prominent of the 33 Republicans in the replacement field all have ties to the defeated President. San Diego area businessman John Cox, for example, was strongly endorsed by Trump when he ran against Newsom in 2018 and lost in a 62-38 percent landslide. Ex-San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer proudly says he voted for Trump last year and can be seen in Oval Office photos fawned over him. Reality TV star Caitlin Jenner has had ex-Trump operatives in her so-far ineffective campaign. And so on.

So Newsom has an early election date and everything he said he wants and needs in order to defend himself, save one. A blunder attributed to his aides deprives him of the tag “Democrat” following his name in the recall question. But he has plenty of money and plenty of name recognition, with almost no Californian unaware that Newsom is, in fact, a Democrat, even if the ballot doesn’t say so. Among the funded, he has only Republican opponents. He has a state budget that will put significant COVID recovery checks in millions of mailboxes just before the vote. He has $5.2 billion to pay more than a year’s rent for almost all Californians who lost jobs to the pandemic. He has an electoral system that will furnish mail ballots to every registered

voter, making it easier than ever for them to vote, even if they’re not feeling fired up about it. For most candidates, this looks like a dream world. And yet, no poll so far shows great enthusiasm for keeping Newsom around. So there remains plenty of work for the governor to do if he really wants to stay in office and maybe later move on to either the Senate or the White House – or both. It’s a situation very different from what faced ex-Gov. Gray Davis, who was recalled within months of getting reelected in 2002, the only American governor ever to lose his office so ignominiously. But Davis faced an electorate that blamed him for a major energy crunch and a series of rolling blackouts. Plus, he ran up against the Termina-

COMMENTARY

W

e are endlessly hectored by greenie leftists to change our sinful ways and adopt the harshest solutions to an imagined climate crisis regardless of the economic dislocation and hardship being imposed upon all of us, not to mention the most vulnerable of our populations. I say “imagined” as I emphatically reject the assertion that whatever climate anomalies occur warrant description as a crisis requiring extreme measures to correct. The first assumption of “fighting climate change” is that you can actually fight climate change. None of the proposed or mandated solutions, however extreme, will have any measurable effect whatsoever upon the climate. The Earth’s climate is an

enormous heat engine driven by incomprehensibly powerful natural forces that easily overpower our most strenuous efforts, which are comparable to a mosquito attempting to slow the speed of a car on a freeway. For instance, if America completely de-industrialized and reverted to an early 19th Century lifestyle devoid of fossil fuels, our climate temperature would not decline even a single degree over the next 100 years. However, the poverty, disease, and brutally short and nasty lifestyle for 99 percent of us would be quite real and long-lasting. Elimination of fossil fuels would eliminate approximately 6000 products we normally depend upon and which are essential components of our civilization, not to mention being fully integrated into the manufacture of so-called alternative, renewable energy sources. In fact, without fossil fuels, no alternative energy source could be manufactured or operated, and the alternative sources still require back-up by fossil fuel, hydroelectric, or nuclear power plants to provide stability to the electrical grid, which alternative energy sources are incapable of

producing. Solar/Wind/Battery Storage energy systems heavily depend upon fossil fuels for component parts, operation and especially upon large-scale mining operations for essential minerals which are located in environmentally sensitive regions. They are also most abundant in nations with the worst human rights records and indifference to environmental destruction. An electric car today depends upon minerals obtained by heavy use of slave and child labor, massive destruction of landscapes, soil destabilization, and ground-water contamination by tyrannical regimes that couldn’t care less about western sensitivities or morals. Proposed solar systems will take enormous amounts of land to produce the massive quantities of electrical power required to implement the “Green New Deal,” literally millions of acres, mostly in arid western lands, despoiling critical habitat and obliterating hundreds of endangered species. When the panels degrade and require replacement, the toxic components within pose a serious hazardous waste disposal problem equal to any

chemical plant waste product. Wind arrays already slaughter tens of thousands of raptors, especially eagles and hawks but without the same government concern that would manifest if an oil company was responsible for a fraction of bird deaths. A wind turbine blade can generate a vortex at the blade tip equal to a 270 mph wind which explains human complaints about noise and other disruptions. Wind turbine blades are not recyclable, contain extremely toxic components that leach into water tables after being cut up on-site, transported to landfills (by fossil-fueled trucks), and unceremoniously dumped. This problem will increase exponentially over time with no solution in sight. Batteries for electric vehicles (EVs) will comprise 90 percent of the lithium-ion market within a few years. Producing these batteries is extremely energy-intensive, requiring massive use of fossil fuels and environmental degradation through mining operations for essential mineral components. The typical EV battery weighs 1000 lbs and normally contains 25 lbs of lithium, 30 lbs of cobalt, 60 lbs of nickel, 110 lbs of graph-

she looked up surprised and puzzled. Not knowing how to respond, she just stared back at him. They had been all about the work, and they had forgotten why they were a couple. In an instant, her puzzlement changed to acceptance and adoring eyes. She finally responded, “Thank you.” Her eyes and smile shined with gratitude. At that moment, things were suddenly different between Brooke and Trey. They had rekindled the bond between them that had dim through the years of neglect. All Saturday morning, plans went out the window. Instead, they spent the rest of the day together, laughing, and enjoying each other’s company. Two words in one unexpected moment changed everything.

Saturday, probably like most Saturdays. On this day, only two words were exchanged between them. But those heartfelt words changed the course of their day and renewed their love for each other. Our words have that kind of power. Words can do so many things; they can destroy, they can hurt, or they can uplift and encourage. What we say matters, and appreciating those we love is so important in cultivating a healthy relationship.

tor, movie muscleman Arnold Schwarzenegger, who emerged as the favorite to ignite the recall and replace Davis from the moment he declared himself a candidate. There is no one like that today. Newsom has been among the most effective governors in America at getting his state vaccinated and reducing pandemic damage. He has, for the most part, kept the lights on, even while he’s favored utility companies financially. So it would be a major upset if Newsom were to be dumped. But there’s still that huge enthusiasm advantage Republicans now have over Democrats. Which means we all must stay tuned.

ite, 90 lbs of copper, and 400 lbs of steel, aluminum, and plastic components (derived from oil). To acquire just five of the above elements requires mining 90,000 lbs of ore. To get the 90,000 lbs of ore requires excavation of between 200,000 and 1,500,000 lbs of earth or about 500,000 lbs per battery. Multiply that by the 10 million EVs projected for California and some idea materializes about the scale of destruction required to switch to EVs. Extraction of lithium requires massive use of water in the driest places on earth. The South American “lithium triangle” (Argentina, Bolivia, and Chile) holds half the world’s supply of lithium in its salt flats. Miners bore holes in salt flats and “pump salty, mineral-rich brine to the surface.” It’s left to evaporate for months with a mix of manganese, potassium, borax, and lithium; filter it and evaporate it again. It takes up to 18 months to filter it sufficiently to produce extractable quantities of lithium carbonate. Cobalt, extremely toxic, also essential to EV batteries, is mined primarily by hand, with 50 percent of global supplies originating from the Democratic Republic of the

Congo using child labor. International child advocates report that most of these children suffer horrendous injuries and shortened lifespans to under 30 due to the dangerous and exploitive conditions under which they labor. Imperialist Greens have established artificial political deadlines for a massive conversion of our economy to unreliable energy sources. They will impoverish most Americans while subsidizing virtue signaling for the wealthiest. It’s unconscionable!

grief that only someone married for 63 years can understand. Their love and words made their relationship so strong. It was beautiful to see what amazing friendship they shared and how much they meant to each other. Can you think of two words right now that may make or change someone’s day? Simply saying, “Love you” can change someone’s dark to light. Feeling appreciated and loved is a basic instinct and, even more importantly, is being able to express appreciation and love to others. This is not as instinctual or easy for some individuals to display. If you are one of those people that can express themselves openly, you are blessed. Share your gratitude and love to those around you. For

IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. A public auction sale to the highest bidder for cash, cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, or savings association, or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the Financial Code and au-

Street Address or other common designation of real property: 1831 PONDEROSA LANE PASO ROBLES, California 93446 Described as follows: As more fully described on said Deed of Trust. A.P.N #.: 009-791-042 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address or other common designation, if any, shown above. If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California

Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (855) 976-3916 or visit this Internet Web site www.auction.com, using the file number assigned to this case 20-61761. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. NOTICE TO TENANT: You may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an “eligible tenant buyer,” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an “eligible bidder,” you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase. First, 48 hours after the date of the trustee sale, you can call (855) 976-3916, or visit this internet website tracker.auction.com/sb1079, using the file number assigned to this case 20-61761 to find the date on which the trustee’s sale was held, the amount of the last and highest bid, and the address of the trustee. Second, you must send a written notice of intent to place a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 15 days after the trustee’s sale.Third, you must submit a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 45 days after the trustee’s sale. If you think you may qualify as an “eligible tenant buyer” or “eligible bidder,” you should consider contacting an attorney or appropriate real estate professional immediately for advice regarding this potential right to purchase.

Kristin Smart Murder Preliminary Hearing Day 1

Day 2

Witnesses included Smart's parents and former college students

One witness recalls seeing Paul Flores in Smart’s dorm prior to her disappearance

By CAMILLE DeVAUL SAN LUIS OBISPO — Monday, Aug. 3, marked the first day of the preliminary hearing for Paul and Ruben Flores. The father and son, Paul (44) and Ruben (80) Flores, were arrested in April in connection with the 1996 murder and accessory after the fact of Kristin Smart. The hearing is expected to last three weeks. After several delays, the hearing came to order at approximately 10:30 a.m. Denise Smart, Kristin’s mother, was the first witness called to the stand by Deputy District Attorney Christopher Peuvrelle. The prosecutor started by asking Denise questions about herself and Kristin’s role in the family. Then, he asked Denise if Kristin was the type to run away. Three photos were submitted to evidence and shown to Denise, who began crying when she looked at the first photo showing the Smart family, including Denise, her husband Stan, and three children, in Hawaii in January of 1995, about a year-and-a-half before Kristin went missing at the age of 19 from the Cal Poly campus. The second photo was a picture of Kristin with blonde hair in 1995 and the third photo of her on spring break in 1996 with her hair dyed brown. Peuvrelle asked Denise about her relationship with her daughter. “Kristin felt like a gift to our family,” Denise replied, describing Kristin as energetic and the best hugger. Denise said the last time she spoke with her daughter, Kristin was concerned about getting an incomplete in one of her classes because her Scantron test form had been lost. That Friday, Denise testified that Kristin left a voicemail saying she had good news and would call her mom on Sunday, but the call never came. According to Denise, she said her husband, Stan Smart, drove down from Northern California to look for their daughter and spent most of the summer of 1996 in San Luis Obispo. Denise testified that the first thing she did was contact Cal Poly and the university’s president’s office but was told they did not know anything about her daughter’s disappearance. Denise said she then called university police and was told they had no information. She then reportedly turned to the FBI in Los Angeles and was in touch with its sexual assault task force. Denise says the task force reached out to Cal Poly and was told everything was “under control” and the FBI’s help was not needed. During Denise’s testimony, Paul Flores’s attorney, Robert Sanger, continually objected for relevance and hearsay. After a short break, the court reconvened for cross examination at around 11:30 a.m. Sanger questioned Denise if she knew Kristin was applying to modeling jobs under the name “Roxy” and Denise replied with, “no.” Denise then denied knowing much, if anything, prior to last month about Kristin having boyfriends while at college. After Sanger, Denise was questioned by Harold Mesick, Ruben Flores’s attorney. Mesick questioned whether Denise knew Kristin was missing for some time while working as a lifeguard in Hawaii, and Denise denied knowing anything about it. The defense said it plans to call Denise back to the stand for more questioning at a later date. After a break, Stan Smart, Kristin’s father, was called to the stand. Stan described his relationship with Kristin as being a close one. He said he spent more than two months searching for his daughter. Stan described the Cal Poly Police Department as “ill-equipped” to handle a missing person or homicide case. While being cross-examined by Sanger, Stan was asked if Kristin had a desire to be a model and move to Thailand. Stan testified that Kristin mentioned she wanted to go back to Thailand but was under the impression that it was for school. While searching for his daughter and following tips, Stan said he heard about Paul Flores’s possible involvement with Kristin’s disappearance.

Stan testified that he went to Ruben Flores’s Arroyo Grande home to talk, but when he drove up, Stan says Ruben came out of the house yelling, “You need to get out of here, or someone could get shot.” Stan then pointed at Ruben in court. Sanger then asked Stan if he also went to Scott Peterson’s home, suggesting Scott and Laci Peterson were at the same party Kristin was last seen at. Then Sanger continued to question Stan about other men in Kristin’s life around her disappearance. Sanger also suggested Kristin was reported for stalking a man at a bookstore. The judge repeatedly sustained Peurvelle’s objections to Sangers claims. The court heard a motion to quash on behalf of Susan Flores, Paul’s mother. Jeffry Radding, Susan’s attorney, submitted the motion. Susan will be pleading the Fifth and not be taking the stand as a witness in her son and ex-husband’s case. Later, two more witnesses were called to the stand. Eric, a Cal Poly student in 1996, said he attended a party on Crandall Way in San Luis Obispo that Kristin Smart attended the night she disappeared, and Kendra, a Cuesta College student at the time, said she also attended the party. Both identified Paul in court. Eric said Paul was “a little standoffish, looking around the back of the room,” but adds that he never spoke directly to Paul that night. However, Eric said he did join a conversation Paul was having with some of his female friends, saying they looked uncomfortable. During cross-examination, Mesick asked Eric if he remembers any women who were at the party. Eric responded by saying he remembered one woman specifically. Mesick then asked if that is because he listened to the “My Backyard” podcast. Eric said he does not know the podcast. Kendra then took the stand. She described her experience with Paul Flores when she asked him for a piece of gum. Kendra said she and Paul began kissing before someone yelled at them to “get a room.” Feeling embarrassed, Kendra followed Paul to the backyard because Paul said he had gum in his car. He then made a move on Kendra, which she declined and pushed him before leaving. Later at the same party, Kendra said she saw Kristin fall in the hallway with Paul standing over her. Kendra testified that she then pulled Kristin outside and warned her to stay away from Paul because she was concerned for her safety. She described Kristin as being “highly intoxicated” and unable to care for herself. Later that night, Kendra saw Kristin in the driveway of a nearby home and offered to walk her home, but Kristin declined, saying she was waiting for someone. A few weeks later, Kendra said she called Cal Poly Police after seeing information on Kristin’s disappearance on the news. That was when Kendra learned her name was Kristin because, at the party, she introduced herself as “Roxy.” During cross-examination by Sanger, Kendra explained she was not interviewed by law enforcement until 2014 but was interviewed by campus police in 1996. Sanger asked if Kendra spoke with Christ Lambert, creator of the Your Own Backyard podcast and if she knew he had made this case his “personal crusade.” Kendra confirmed she had spoken to Chris Lambert. When Mesick cross-examined Kendra, he asked if she knew how Kristin got home that night because of the podcast (Your Own Backyard). Kendra said she saw how she got home on the news before the podcast came out. At the end of the hearing late Monday afternoon, a discussion regarding unsealing documents was brought up, but no final decisions were made. The hearing will continue in person at 9 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 3. The names of all witnesses mentioned will be addressed by first name only to protect their identity in accordance with court orders.

By CAMILLE DeVAUL & MELISSA GUERRA SAN LUIS OBISPO — Tuesday, Aug. 3, is the second day of the preliminary hearing for Paul and Ruben Flores. The day’s hearing began on time with Robert Sanger, Paul Flores’s attorney, issuing some concerns with rising COVID cases in the San Luis Obispo County jail. Sanger was concerned for his client, saying Paul (44) may be at risk in the courtroom. According to Deputy District Attorney Chris Peuvrelle, at least two witnesses summoned for the hearing will not be taking the stand due to possible COVID-19 exposure. Sanger suggested the court look at possible changes to keep everyone safe. Honorable Judge Van Rooyen said the hearing would proceed as scheduled, but everyone in front of the bar will remain wearing maks except when addressing the court.

Steven

The prosecution called the first witness to the stand, Steven, a former Cal Poly student and resident of the Glen Muir dorms that Kristin Smart lived in when she disappeared. Peurvelle established Steven was a Cal Poly student from 1995-2000 and lived on the third floor of Muir Hall in 1996. Kristin lived on the first floor of Muir Hall in room 120. Now Steven is a veteran and retired police officer for the city of Berkley. Steven said he and Kristin became friends after commenting on her height and asked if she played basketball. At the time, Steven was on the Cal Poly basketball team and mentioned himself having a large ego then. Peurvelle had Steven identify his and Kristin’s dorm room from a selection of photos of Muir Hall. Steven then identified Paul Flores in the courtroom and testified that he saw Paul at Muir Hall twice—both times alone and once on Kristin’s floor and another time on the second-floor looking “creepy and weird.” Then, Steven said he once saw Paul in Kristin’s dorm room, saying that looking back, she looked uncomfortable and nervous. Sanger made several objections, claiming that Steven was creating a narrative and not answering questions. His objections were sustained several times by Judge van Rooyen. During Sanger’s cross-examination of Steven, he asked if the FBI interviewed Steven in 1999. Steven answered, “yes.” Sanger then asked if Steven told authorities his observations before that interview, and Steven answered “no.” Sanger asked Steven if he knew he was the only one to report seeing Paul Flores interact with Kristin outside of the party on Crandall Way. Steven said he wasn’t sure. Further into Sanger’s questions, it appeared Steven’s memory began to slip. Last month, Steven was interviewed by the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff ’s Office. Sanger referred to that report and said Steven often referred to Paul as “creepy” and could not be 100 percent sure Paul was the one he saw in Kristin’s dorm room back in 1996. Steven then said he could not recall questions pertaining to Kristins’s romantic relationships, whether she used a nickname, wanted to model, or was aware of Crandall Way and the party there. Harold Mesick, Ruben Flores’s attorney, questioned Steven. He asked Steven if he told Paul to leave when he saw him in Kristin’s dorm. Steven replied by saying he just walked by, regrets not stepping in, and now feels somewhat responsible. Sanger cross-examines Steven again. He says that when Steven called Paul a “creep” in his 2021 interview, he had formed an opinion. Steven said, “Okay? This is America.” Sanger responded with, “This is also a court where my client is being accused of murder.” Peurvelle redirects and asked Steven if he is 100 percent sure it was Paul Flores he saw in Kristin’s dorm room. The Judge overruled Sanger’s objection, saying the question was leading. Steven repeatedly said it was Paul he saw in the dorm room. Preliminary hearing for the murder of Kristin Smart started on Monday, Aug. 2. Defendants Paul and Ruben Flores were joined by attorneys Robert Sanger (Paul) and Harold Mesick (Ruben). Prosecution is led Deputy District Attorney Christopher Peuvrell with San Luis Obispo Superior Court Judge Craig van Rooyen is presiding over the preliminary hearing.

Matt

After lunch, a new witness was called to the stand, Matt, another former Cal Poly student. Peurvelle established that Matt was living in the Sierra Madre dorms on May 24, 1996, and he attended the party at 135 Crandall Way that night. He arrived at the party around 9 p.m. with his roommate Ross. They stayed

until about midnight. Matt confirmed it was Kristin who walked up to him early that night, although she introduced herself as “Roxy.” He said it appeared Kristin had a few drinks but was not stumbling and was slurring a tiny bit. Kristin asked Matt if his roommate Ross found her attractive, then asked if he found her attractive. Matt replied, “yes.” Soon afterward, Matt identified Paul as the man who walked up to Matt and asked if Kristin and Ross were an item and if he knew if she was dating. Paul indicated he was interested in Kristin, but Matt does not remember the language Paul used. When Matt left the party around midnight, he found Kristin lying on the lawn. He told her she couldn’t stay, and she told them to leave. Matt said Kristin appeared far more intoxicated than when he first arrived at the party. Sanger then began to cross-examine Matt. He confirmed for Sanger that he has spoken to authorities two or three times. More recently, he spoke with the district attorney but declined to speak with the defense’s private investigator, saying it was a “personal decision.” Sanger then asked if Matt remembers seeing Scott Peterson at the party on Crandell Way. Matt asked if he meant the one in prison and confirmed that, no, he did not see him there.

Cheryl

The next witness called to the stand was Cheryl. She confirmed she also lived in the Sierra Madre dorms in 1996. Cheryl testified that she consumed only 3-4 beers over the course of 4-5 hours that night. Cheryl said she left the party around 1 a.m. to walk home with a friend. After Peurvelle asked Cheryl if she remembers Paul at the party, Sanger objected, and Judge van Rooyen sustained. Cheryl confirmed that she saw Paul at the party and identified him in the courtroom. However, she cannot confirm interacting with him at the party. When leaving the party around 1 a.m., Cheryl said Tim offered to walk her home. Tim found Kristin at some point, but Kristin did not see that interaction. Tim, Cheryl, and Kristin began walking home when Paul came up to them, offering to walk her home. At some point, Tim left the group. Cheryl cannot recall the exact details of the walk home and had to have her memory refreshed with her original statement being read. Before leaving Kristin with Paul at the corner of Grand and Perimeter, Paul asked Cheryl for a kiss which she declined. Then Cheryl asked Paul if he would take Kristin home. Paul said, “yes.” Cheryl said the last image she has is Paul with his arm around Kristin’s waist. “I didn’t think anything bad would happen to her,” she said. During a cross-examination with Sanger, he asked Cheryl if she watched any shows about Kristin and Paul. Cheryl confirmed she watched some of them. However, when asked if she has spoken to Chris Lambert, Cheryl said “no,” but she has listened to the podcast. Sanger asked if Mahan ever spoke to her. Cheryl said Mahan came to her door, but she did not speak to him and that her boyfriend answered the door. During a 1997 interview with Detective Stewart, Cheryl told them she did not see any inappropriate touching by Paul. Sanger then went back and forth with Cheryl deciding whether or not she asked Paul to take Kristin back to her dorm or dorm room. Later, Detective Clinton Cole of the San Luis Obispo Sheriff ’s Office was questioned. Cole has been a sworn police officer for 26 years. Cole confirmed for Peurvelle that he obtained a booking negative of Paul from Smart’s attorney James Murphy as the police department did not have it. He testified regarding his process to get a copy of the photo, which has yet to be booked into evidence. Sanger has objections to the photo being entered into evidence. Judge van Rooyen will be reviewing the evidence and will resume the subject during the hearing on Wednesday, Aug. 4. The names of all witnesses mentioned will be addressed by first name only to protect their identity in accordance with court orders.

FROM PAGE ONE DROUGHT CONTINUED FROM A1

While the Californian drought is proving to be damaging enough, it isn’t the only state experiencing a drought this year. According to the U.S. drought monitor map, published by the National Drought Mitigation Center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, 11 states are experiencing extreme drought conditions: • New Mexico • Arizona • California • Nevada • Utah • Oregon • Washington • Montana • North Dakota • Colorado • Wyoming Additionally, some areas in Idaho and South Dakota are also suffering from extreme drought. Wheat is the fourth top-selling commodity in the U.S., averaging an annual income of $5.13 billion. Four of the states listed above are in the Nation’s top 10 wheat producers. In a Spokesman Review article, a wheat farmer in Washington State said, “This is probably going to be the worst harvest we’ve had for the 35 years we’ve been doing this.” Climates that generally don’t see over 90 degrees are getting tempera-

tures above 100 degrees. High temperatures and lack of water mean lower quality wheat kernels and possible higher protein content— all factors to less tonnage for farmers and buyers wanting a lower price for wheat. California produces over 400 different commodities, including two-thirds of the nation’s fruit and nuts, one-third of its vegetables, and one out of every five gallons of milk. According to the CFWC, the following commodities have already been affected by water shortage in California: • Alfalfa • Almonds • Apricots • Asparagus • Beans • Cantaloupes • Corn • Garlic • Grapes • Honeydew • Lettuce • Onions • Peaches • Peppers • Pima Cotton • Rice • Sweet Corn • Tomatoes • Watermelons • Wheat Basically, the effects of higher temperatures and drought are already affecting farmers, and we

will soon see it in the food supply. Western states are undoubtedly experiencing the start of a potentially horrendous drought. But in California, other factors are taking water from farmers. “It’s the result of changing policies that have shifted the water that is available for farms, homes, and businesses to serve a greater number of environmental purposes. And when we get to a drought year like we have now, there’s no flexibility left in the system, and we end up with a couple of million acres of farmland with no water supply,” explained Wade. On Apr. 15, 2015, Channel 3 News in Sacramento interviewed former California Governor Jerry Brown. At the time, California was in the worse year of the 20142016 drought, and farmers in the California Valley saw water rights suspended. During the interview with Channel 3, Brown stated, “50 percent of the water in California goes to protect the environment. 40 percent goes to agriculture, and about 10 percent goes to urban and commercial uses.” Brown’s statement is backed up by the Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC). “Statewide, average water use is roughly 50 percent environmental, 40 percent agricultural, and 10 percent urban, although the percentage of water use by sector varies

the most of any year to date. Clickard also stated that there was a significant jump in enthusiasm due to the cancelation of several events over the past year and a half because of the COVID-19 restrictions. “The energy level is through the roof, and our numbers reflect it too!” said Rolfe Nelson, AGF Treasurer, and Board member. Like so many other events, the All-Comers Track & Field meet was canceled last year in response to COVID-19 concerns. “I think it was the right thing to do for the safety of our community,” said Robyn Schmidt, from the Board of Directors for Atascadero All Comers Track Meets. “I know it was sad for many families because it is such a favorite summer activity for the youth. But, I knew we would be back and would all be even more joyful being able to be there to enjoy this community event.” “There was a void in not having this,” Clickard said, “because this is one of the best events we do. We just love this.” “We started the Greyhound Foundation to build this track in 1995,” said Clickard. “In 2011, we kind of morphed from an athletic support group into a drug prevention group. So the Greyhound Foundation and Lighthouse are about addiction awareness, prevention, intervention, and education for our adolescent population.” “And that’s any kind of addiction,” added Nelson. “Phone addiction, gaming addiction, alcohol addiction...” “...yes, any kind of addiction,” Clickard agreed. “We’re also dealing with depression and anxiety in children, too, at the Wellness Center at the High School and Middle School.” As children were confined to their homes to avoid the possibility of illness, all indicators have shown a steep rise in mental illness in children. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that the proportion of mental health–related emergency department visits among adolescents aged 12–17 years increased 31 percent compared to 2019. The most significant increase was seen in teenage girls. During Feb. 21 through Mar. 20, the suspected suicide attempt emergency department visits were 50.6 percent higher among girls aged 12 to 17 years than during the same period in 2019. These are precisely the issues that canceled events like the All-Comers Track & Field Meets were intended to address. “I am a firm believer that physical activity is such an important factor in good mental health. It doesn’t matter how good we are. Physical activity changes us physically, emotionally, and physiologically,” said Schmidt. “It just matters that we are active. Through sports and physical activity, we learn discipline, teamwork, following guidelines, good health and fitness, overcoming challenges, persevering, pushing your limits, setting goals, and achieving them. And from these attributes, we gain confidence in ourselves, improve our self-value, and are better at all we do.” “The Lighthouse Program is pretty all-encompassing,” said Clickard, “so this event is all about seeing families together, developing wholesome kids, and it’s fun.” For more information on The All-Comers Track & Field Meets, visit atascaderogreyhoundfoundation.org/all-comers.html.

Students who participated in the 2020’s program were presented and celebrated before the 2021 winners were announced. This year’s winners are: 1st Place: Shane Brennan (THS)1952 Farmall Super AV 2nd Place: John Paul Schmidt (THS)- 1940 Allis Chalmers Model B 3rd Place: Annika Jensen (Homeschooled in Santa Margarita)- 1964 Massey Ferguson 135 Winners of the program receive

dramatically across regions and between wet and dry years.” As for environmental water use, the PPIC says: “Environmental water use falls into four categories: water in rivers protected as “wild and scenic” under federal and state laws, water required for maintaining habitat within streams, water that supports wetlands within wildlife preserves, and water needed to maintain water quality for agricultural and urban use.” The Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) is another Californian policy threatening farm water. SGMA was enacted to halt overdrafts and bring groundwater basins into balanced levels of pumping and recharge. SGMA also requires local agencies to adopt sustainability plans for high and medium-priority groundwater basins. According to the Blueprint Economic Impact Analysis: Phase One Results by David Sunding and David Roland-Holst at UC Berkeley: “Based on an analysis of SGMA and other anticipated water supply restrictions, we conclude that up to one million acres may be fallowed in the San Joaquin Valley over a period of 2-3 decades as a result of reduced ground and surface water availability. This amount of fallowing is approximately one-fifth of all acres currently under cultivation in the Valley. The farm revenue loss associated with

award money sponsored by JB Dewar Inc. First place receives $4,000, second gets $3,000, and third place is awarded $2,000. “This past year was a little bit of a different year, so we’re happy that we were able to do the program still to give the students an outlet outside of being stuck at home, doing school online. They were able to get out there, get their hands dirty and work on something,” said Rachel Dewar, the programs coordinator. In addition to restoration winners, one student was awarded the “Spirit of Agriculture” sponsored by Isaac Lindsey and his family.

NIGHT OUT CONTINUED FROM A1

“This is the community I grew up in,” said APD Officer Craig Martineau, “so I love interacting with the community that I’m from and I’m a part of. Now I have a job as a law enforcement officer here, so it’s a good opportunity for the community to get to know me so they can have a little bit of an idea of who I am, that I’m just a normal person, really. It’s a small department, so if you call us for help, the chance of you seeing one of the six of us that are out here is pretty high.” “It’s a partnership between our local businesses and our first responders for our community members,” said APD Officer Lauren Purify. “It’s a night out to get to know each other. We get to hang out with them, and they get to hang out with us.” Children jumped in bounce houses while Galaxy Theaters handed out free movie theater popcorn, SloDoCo passed out free donuts, Wild Fields Brewhouse served up free food options. Barracuda Baking provided free cookies, and an amalgamation of North County Starbucks Coffee stores all came out to serve free iced coffee and tea. All in all, it was a huge meet and greet with the people of Atascadero. “We kind of like to break the rules when it comes to donuts,” said Laura Krause of SloDoCo. “We try to do crazy and fun donuts that taste appetizing.” “We are here connecting with the community, hoping to bring awareness to our law enforcement and first responders,” said Natasha Schlitz of Starbucks Coffee.

this fallowing is $7.2 billion per year.” The report also says, “Counting indirect and induced job losses together with direct losses, the SGMA and future surface water restrictions will result in as many as 85,000 lost jobs and $2.1 billion in lost employee compensation annually.” Wade explains, “It’s going to be difficult to continue to farm in the scale that we are now in much of the Central Valley in California because of the change in the accessibility to groundwater--it could lead to half a million acres or more farmland being taken out of production.” On Jul. 23, the CWB announced an “emergency curtailment” order. The order would inevitably cut thousands of farmers off from rivers and streams in the Sacramento and San Joaquin river watersheds. The order would include pre-1914 appropriative and certain riparian water rights claimants. On Aug. 3 the CWB passed the emergency curtailment order with a 5-0 vote. State regulators said farmers would have to stop diverting water from waters and streams leading into the Sacramento and San Juaquin Delta--the State’s two largest river systems-- because the drought is rapidly depleting the California reservoirs and killing endangered species of fish. The curtailment order will not

Isaac and his brother Louis are past contestants who have each completed three tractors and are familiar with these students’ challenges. This year the Lindsey family honored Cameron McEntire with a $500 scholarship. On judging day, Isaac was impressed when he saw Cameron help a fellow competitor whose tractor wouldn’t start for the judges. Cameron was awarded the “Spirit of Agriculture” for embodying leadership and being a team player. Tractors from last year and this year’s contestants will be on display at the Stockyard Pavillion for the dura-

take effect for another two weeks and excludes some uses, including water for drinking, cooking, cleaning, sanitation and generating electricity, and more. Together, the Sacramento and San Joaquin river systems drain 40 percent of California’s land and account for at least a portion of the water supply for two-thirds of the state’s nearly 40 million residents. “The fact remains that water supplies are extremely limited across the State, and we are running out of options,” said Ernest Conant, regional director of the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, who supports the new rule. The State has also hired 15 people to help enforce the emergency order, according to Erik Ekdahl, deputy director for the division of water rights. The rule gives State regulators authority to enforce it, including fines for noncompliance. Chris Scheuring, senior counsel for the California Farm Bureau, said, “In general, farmers understand drought, and they understand lean rain years. That’s the business we’re in,” he said. “But they don’t understand the downward slide in water reliability we are facing in California, sort of on a systemic level.” A story on the new curtailment order, its effects on farmers and the general public to follow.

All levels of mechanical knowledge are welcome to participate in the program. JB Dewar also accepts tractor donations.

that we serve and see on an everyday basis. It means something to us at the end of the day. It’s not just a do your job and go home type of thing.” National Night Out is celebrated annually across the United States on the first Tuesday of August.
